hello and welcome to this diary
this is the very first entry, still from the UK, a few days before we fly out to Dhaka on Monday
I have been doing a little research on Bangladesh and I just saw a few striking videos on the guardian website on climate change and the effects in Bangladesh (thank you Katie for sending me the link).
it will be a challenging residency and I am looking forward to a shift in perception
according to BBC Weather its sunny and warm in Dhaka next week and we are looking forward to a little bit of sunshine Cornwall has been very very grey
all the books are being sent off Friday (see thank you section) and we are heading up to Heathrow on Sunday for our Monday flight
I will be uploading photos and videos as we travel so do visit this site to follow our journey and leave your comments!
(I just saw the flag for Bangladesh is green with a red dot what a beautiful combination and what a funny thing I have been wearing a lot of red and green for the past few weeks without realising)
